Coventry City frontman Leon Clarke says that he is enjoying his striking partnership with Callum Wilson.

Coventry City striker Leon Clarke has said that he is enjoying playing alongside Callum Wilson in attack.

The pair have netted 10 goals between them so far this season, with Wilson scoring six and Clarke four.

Clarke, who scored 21 times last season, believes that Wilson will be reaching double figures in the near future.

"We have a bit of banter because he's at the top of the scoring charts and normally it's me up there," Clarke told the Coventry Telegraph.

"I'm a couple behind him now and I'm sure I'll claw those back. We get on really well; he's a good kid and I haven't got a bad word to say about him. He deserves all the goals he has got and deserves to be at the top.

"And long may it continue and if he keeps working hard and doing what he's doing he'll get double figures, no problem."

Coventry face Colchester United on Saturday.
